Regardless, the merchant is out of luck. You may win a few chargeback disputes with the right documentation and stupid admissions by the "thief", but if they have any brains, the chargeback will go through.
For example, Chase is now partnered with Paymentech and First Data owns a percentage of that company as well. For an internet merchant account, you would really want to consider a MAP.
Some banks will not even separate the MAP and your checking account with them. So if you get a lot of chargebacks - your checking account might run the risk of exposure and closure.
But once again, it goes back to what the chargeback code was and what card association? The card association is what governs the chargebacks not the MAP - they will try to give the association all the information at times, but it is a vicious circle.
